Living Positively with HIV and Keeping Yourself Healthy
, Danny West
Danny West is a trainer, coach, and leadership consultant, has been living with HIV for the past 24 years, and remains healthy today, having been treated successfully with antiretroviral medications (ARVs) for the last five years. Whatâs the secret to his longevity? He feels that positive thinking and the determination to live a fulfilled life in which he can make a significant difference is the most important thing. He tries to avoid stress as much as possible and to manage stress by getting adequate sleep, having a balanced diet, exercising, having massages, swimming, taking walks in the country, and balancing work with time to relax. One of the most significant factors is that he has a very good support network of people around him who he can talk to and share his thoughts and feelings with. He has access to multiple support groups and his own coach. Danny thinks itâs important to talk about HIV, your feelings, and whatâs going on in your life on a daily basis. He canât say for sure why heâs still alive and healthy today, but dying of HIV has never been an option for him. Heâs had an incredible life because he MADE IT HAPPEN.
